Petrus Borel (1809 - 1859) - French author with the spirit of a wolfAt the time the fiery romantic literary artist Petrus Borel penned this collection of seven short stories he was a lycanthrope, that is, a human on the outside, a wolf on the inside.

Sono racconti immorali perché racconti dell'abominio, dell'abiezione; racconti nei quali, a una fortuna linguistica, s'assomma una ricerca del male che s'insinua nella vita.Omicidio, suicidio, stupro, e poi ancora povertà, spleen, indolenza; le offese al genere umano nelle quali l'autore scava, con riso sardonico.
